Here you will find many documents, many of which have been disclosed for the first time. This fascinating collection of documents ranges from Gilels’ birth certificate to the poster of his last concert, from Dmitri Shostakovich’s greeting card to a telegram sent by Yehudi Menuhin.

If you would like to enrich our gallery and archive with new documents, or would like to make us aware of any amendments or corrections, please get in touch with us. We would be extremely grateful for any new information.
